‘You look tired!’

‘I am tired.’

‘Why are you tired? When did you get up?’

‘I got up at 6:30 as usual. But that’s not the reason why I am tired.’

‘So why are you tired?’

‘I am tired because I didn’t sleep well. I was up all night. I went to bed at 10 o’clock, but I couldn’t sleep.’

‘Why couldn’t you sleep? Did your neighbours have a party? Did they play loud music?’

‘No, they didn’t have any party. There was no loud music.’

‘So what was the problem? Why couldn’t you sleep?’

‘I felt sick. I had a very bad stomach ache.’

‘I see. Did your stomach hurt a lot?’

‘Yes, it hurt a lot. I couldn’t stay in bed. I got up and I walked from one corner of the room to another corner of the room.’

‘Did you take some medicine?’

‘Yes, I took some medicine. And I drank hot tea.’

‘And did it help?’

At first it didn’t help. But after one hour, the pain started to disappear.’

‘OK. So what did you do then?’

‘I went back to bed and I tried to sleep.’

‘And when did you fall asleep?’

‘I fell asleep at about four o’clock.’

‘OK. Now I understand why you look so tired.’
